Misheard Lyrics

Post by SeiUsa » Sun Feb 04, 2007 3:12 am

So, what song lyrics have you often misunderstood, only to later find out what they really are?

Most song lyrics by Britney Spears I could not understand. In 'Everytime', the words, "Please forgive. My weakness has caused you pain/And this song's my sorry." The first few times I heard, "He's fugging me. [???] And this sucks by sorry."
Yeah...I know. :?

And one I still wonder how I ever misinterpreted it. In a Disney's Pocahontas song, the Indians sing, "Plant the squash," and for the longest time I thought they said "Captain Squash." And I wondered, "What does Captain Squash have to with anything?" >.<

Anywho...share yours.
The Facts of the Animal Kingdom:
"Zebras can bite."
"Snakes say sss."
"Lions chase people."
And of course…”Tigers bite you.”
--From Tiffu’s Pre-K students. =D
And one from me...Leopards are gorgeous.

i have a hard time understanding brittany spears too :)
in "lucky" when she says "and she cry cry crys in her lonely heart", me and all my childhood friends always thoguth she said "in her lonely car". we were like, wtf does a car have to do with being lonely?
thats the only one i can think of off the top of my head, but i know i've heard some REALLY wierd things in songs before :wink:

''Frustration is the byproduct of success.''- said by our instructor Jason in an attempt to motivate us

You`ll say, Don`t fear your dreams, it`s easier than it seems
You`ll say you`d never let me fall from hopes so high
But never is a promise and you can`t afford to lie

- Fiona Apple, Never is a Promise

Jason: Stop talking, put your clothes on, and go home.
Us:(in a perfect chorus) .... THAT''S WHAT HE SAID!
Jason: ...-_- I quit.

If you ever listened to Radio Disney, they butcher the lyrics, also with Kidz Bop. Like in "Feel Good Inc.", instead of "Windmill, Windmill for the land, turn forever hand and hand", it goes "Windmill, Windmill for the land, learn forever hand and hand" and i'm like "What the fuck"? :( :( :twisted:
Bob: People! Tiff had to put the crying Usagi banner up! Enter the contest!!! D8
Tiff: They must love making Usagi cry. ;_; poor Usagi.

Oh... Geezzz. Like a million times. If I posted every song I miss heard something, the page would take 20 years to read. I just go with one.

Actual Lyrics:
Well, I don't show off, don't criticize
I'm just livin' by my own feelings
And I won't give in, won't compromise
I just only have a steadfast heart of gold
Heard as to me:
When, I don't show off, don't criticize
I'm just living by my own feelings
And I won't give in, won't compromise
I just can only lead with guitar

The way "retarded" is used in that song is slang for going crazy. It's telling you to get retarded; to get crazy. ^^ *has that song* That's what I interpret when I hear that song, anyway.
And really, why shouldn't we be afraid? In case you haven't heard, life is terminal. Cigarettes will kill you. So will your cellphone. Your car is a deadly weapon and alcohol is a quiet killer. Don't lick the lead-based paint on the walls. Don't lick the back of a postage stamp and certainly don't lick any strangers! That will bring you down quickly indeed. Don't drink the water but don't drink less than eight glasses a day. Your enviroment is toxic, your natural resources are dwindling, your days are numbered, but what ever you do, don't panic! The stress, don't you know, will kill you.

Actually, I think there are two versions of the song. The "retarded" one is the original, and the "started" one is the more politically correct MTV-safe version. At least, I think so. I saw it somewhere, but I can't remember where... ^^;;

Yup there's two versions to the song. As NGH said, there's the TV/Radio/edited version (started) and the original "retarded" version. I have the "retarded" version. :D

I'm not sure if this counts or not. It's me being a dumbass, and getting lyrics mixed up with another. So here we go:

In the DDR song Flow (True style mix), in the first part of the song (in the chorus) goes "Only with you do I want to be part of the flow". Then the second half (in the chorus) goes "Only with you do I want to fall into the flow".

Well, dumbass me always get's those two lines mixed up, and I ALWAYS end up singing "Only with you do I wanna fa-art in the flow o____O;;;" XD

This one is the most embarrassing for me. In Madonna's "Ray of Light", when she said "And I feel, like I just got home", I was like "What the hell?", because I thought she had said "And I feel like a Crisco queen". :lol: :lol: :oops: I was actually high on sugar at the time.
